This project cataloged and summarized the design, operation, and monitoring strategies and experiences of North American biofiltration facilities. The primary project deliverable is a dynamic, user-friendly, Web-based Biofiltration Knowledge Base that aids water utilities in the evaluation of biofiltration as a viable and proven approach for drinking water treatment. The Knowledge Base communicates information and direction to the user about (1) the benefits of biofiltration, (2) mitigating negative impacts, (3) solutions for improving initial design and operations of biofiltration facilities, and (4) opportunities for future research. The Knowledge Base is now live and can be accessed below by clicking on Project Resources/Web Tools.

In addition to the Knowledge Base, a research report was published in 2016. The appendices from the research report are posted below under Project Papers.
